Arms deals in place. Tensions over spread of organised crime from PSA into MSA. Shared attitudes in support of some persecuted minorities in the USA. Perceived deliberate attacks against PSA economic interests in MSA. Tensions over Haiti, suspicions growing.

Major transport links connecting to USA run through MSA. MSA is fresh water importer. Tensions in the Great Lakes, MSA admitted to funding KKK, and smugglers apprehended and paraded.

Led by former exile and revolutionary, Nelson Mandela. Regime remains beset by internal chaos and pro-Nazi terrorism. No formal diplomatic exchange, but relations improving.

House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC)

The House Committee on Un-American Activities was first established by the House of Representatives in 1938 as a special investigating committee tasked with investigating subversive activities, alleged disloyalty, and organisations suspected of having communist or fascist ties. Although like its predecessor committees HUAC initially targeted communist and left wing activists, with the growth of fascist activity in Europe and Asia, its focus began to shift. The key turning point demonstrating this shift in focus can be pinpointed to the "Yellow Report", supporting internment of Japanese-Americans following the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1942.

Remaining in operation throughout the Second World War, an incarnation of the Committee survived the peace within the Mountain States of America, where in 1949 a Progressive Congress re-tasked the focus of the Committee and established it as a permanent standing committee. Since this time, the HUAC has operated as a prominent tool of anti-fascism in the MSA, investigating and launching probes into suspected of subversion or propaganda that attacked "the form of government guaranteed by the Constitution." Alternatively lauded as the safeguarding force of democracy and derided as a witch hunt run by zealots, it remains a controversial committee in the House of Representatives.

Composed of nine (9) members, including the chairman of the committee, the HUAC draws its composition in the same manner as other committees - in proportion to the distribution of seats in the House of Representatives, based on the approval of party caucuses of proposals by the committee on committees.

The HUAC is capable of launching investigations and probes into a wide range of organizations, from unions to companies to political organizations. They are also capable of investigating individuals, levying charges against them to be considered by the House of Representatives in a vote if approved by the majority of the committee.

Chairman of the HUAC: Robert S Ellis (Progressive Liberal)

Members of the HUAC: 8
Abraham Shinoda (Progressive Moderate)
Regina Carroll (Progressive Liberal)
Cecelia Ortega (Progressive Hard Left)
Norman Warner (Republican Conservative)
Robert P Goff (Republican Conservative)
Olivia Pina (Republican Moderate)
Andrea Hernandez (Socialist)
Arthur Robertson (Socialist)
